FUE HAIR TRANSPLANT

FUE method allows transfer of healthy hair graft (from donor area) to hair loss areas (recipient) without scarring.

FUE Hair Transplant

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) Hair Transplant is a procedure that transfers healthy hair follicles from donor area to hair loss areas with lesser downtime and no scarring at the donor area.

FUE refers to the method of how the hair follicles are harvested and transferred to hair loss areas.

Over-production of male hormone is the main cause for hair loss. Hair follicles at the top of your head are hormone sensitive whereas hair follicles at the sides and back of scalp are less affected. The hormone-independent hair follicles harvested from the back of scalp retain their resistance to hormone even at the recipient site. Hence, this allows favorable hair growth at the hormone affected hair loss area.

Hair Restoration For Women | FUE Procedure
  • The hairs in the donor area are trim short at 1mm.
  • Both the donor and recipient area will be anesthetized with local anesthetic.
  • During FUE harvesting, individual follicular units are extracted directly from the donor area, one at a time, using micro forceps. They are stored in special medium at regulated temperature for better graft survival.
  • The harvested hair graft are then skillfully implanted into recipient area.
  • Each follicular unit contains an average of 2 to 3 hairs and the number of grafts does not correlate to the number of hairs. (Success rate depends on the amount of existing and transplanted hair, the method of extraction and the direction of transplantation.)
  • Follow up and dressing will be done in clinic the next day and 1 week later.

Success rate of FUE Hair transplant

Graft survival decides the success rate of hair transplant.

According to Graft Survival Studies, an average of 90% survival rate for all follicular units is achievable.

However, there is a range of success rate between 70-95% due to variations in skin condition and hair characters.

After the transplantation, the hairs will undergo a cycle of temporary growth and loss of hair. The next hair regrowth (averagely 6 months later) will be much longer-lasting, ranging from 10 years to a lifetime!
